Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) is a proactive approach to maintenance that involves scheduling and performing routine inspections, tests, and maintenance tasks on equipment or systems to prevent unexpected failures or malfunctions. The goal of PPM is to identify and address potential problems before they occur, reducing the risk of downtime and ensuring equipment continues to operate at its best.
Choosing the best material handling equipment (MHE) supplier is critical to productivity and cost effectiveness across all logistics and manufacturing industries. Whether you are looking for ecommerce fulfilment, sortation, transportation, storage or assembly line production, the quality of your processes depends greatly on the capabilities of your MHE.
